2017 World Ploughing - Tom Evans and Jay Lennox

Congratulations to Tom Evans and Jay Lennox—You’ve Made Canada Proud!

The 2017 World Ploughing Championship was held December 1 – 2 in Kenya. Our representatives from Canada were Jay Lennox (from Grey Normanby Plowmen’s) and Tom Evans (from Bruce County Plowmen’s).

Jay placed 10th in stubble land and 12th in sod land—and overall 11th in the Conventional Category.

Tom placed 13th in stubble land and 2nd in sod land (silver medal)—and overall 8th in the Reversible Category. (The last medal brought back to Canada was in 1976.)

On behalf of Ontario’s Plowing Family, OPA congratulates Tom and Jay on their achievements in Kenya!


Congratulations to Bob Timbers of the Durham Plowmen’s Association!

The Ontario Plowmen’s Association (OPA) is pleased to share news that Robert Timbers has been honoured with an “Honorary Life Membership of the World Ploughing Organization” at the 2017 World Ploughing Championship in Kenya. Bob has been involved at the World level for 64 years.

Bob’s contributions to the art of plowing are vast and include being a long-time member of OPA, OPA President in 1969, as well as a Plowing Competitor at Branch Matches and the IPM, a Plowing Judge and an Honourary Director of OPA.

As a competitor, Bob has represented Canada at the World Ploughing Championship in the Conventional Category four times (1953, 1954, 1956, 1960). Bob was also very involved in the creation of the Canadian Plowing Organization (CPO) and the World Ploughing Organization (WPO). He has sat on the CPO Board of Directors and been Chair/President of the WPO.

On behalf of Ontario’s Plowing Family, OPA extends congratulations and best wishes to Bob.
